Version 2.0.4

Skalarki ProfilerIO

  • No longer needs ProfilerIO to function. The driver is completely Standalone as intended. ProfilerIO should be closed while using driver.
    1. De Flight now provides separate USB Drivers. You will need to replace them via the installer to use the application.
    2. We have provided an installer/uninstall for De Flight drivers via the application. Please note, that when using the De Flight drivers, ProfilerIO will no longer function and vice versa. Meaning you have the option to uninstall and install them.
    3. We have also provided a folder with the USB driver in the application folder so you can manually install them as well.
    4. Because of this we encourage all users to keep SA driver versions below 2.0 if you wish to not have to uninstall and reinstall every time you want to switch simulators.


Plane Installation

  • All Plane Add-ons are installed by default. No longer need to install them separately. You will need to uninstall any add-on planes you installed before updating to 2.0.0.
  • All Updates are now installed including Plane Add-ons from the main program.


Main Window

  • Now shows the current plane that is running and installed.
  • Removed Skalarki as it is no longer needed.


Calibration Page

  • Added Trim Wheel to Calibration
  • Added Ability to disable Motor completely. Grays out if you do not have TQ.
  • Added Dead zone adjustment for All Axis (0-10).
  • Added Values inside Bars to show the current value.
  • Grays out and disables Calibration for hardware not connected.
  • Added reverse checkmarks to reverse levers direction.


Backlights Page

  • Added LED/Display dimming option.
  • Added Auto/Manual Dimming option.
  • Grays out and disables backlighting for hardware not connected.
  • Auto (default) option uses the planes “Int Lights Ann” switch to dim and brighten dimmers. Manual will bypass this and allow full control of the dimming.
  • **Please Note, dimming will not work for GLARE/MCDU due to limitations and the dimming is done via a knob in the back**.

Planes Page

  • Removed “Installed” indication as now planes are automatically installed.
  • Added option to enable and disable Custom plane.
  • Enabled activations for all planes instead of coming soon.
  • Updated command lists for FBW and Fenix.



  • Shows which Skalarki panels are connected and ready.
  • Ability to re-initialize Panels that are not communicating for any reason individually.
  • Ability to disable (default) and enable WX panel on ECAM and disable CS/FO Lighting brightness panels on MIP.


Debug Page

  • More clear text to show what is happening in real time.
  • Shows what plane is loaded and running in RED.
  • Shows hardware ready status.
  • Added Coding to errors as explained in troubleshooting section of the manual.
  • Ability to just show Skalarki info and just show sim info.


Plane Changes

  • Added “v” next to Battery display on OVHD like the real plane.
  • Added Fault LEDs to FLTCTL and Wing Ice LED on FBWA32NX.
  • Added Trim wheel control to FBWA32NX.

Misc Improvements

  • The top of setup page moves the entire Setup menu in conjunction with the move button.
  • Significant improvements to initialization.
  • Improvements to allow for restarting plane or closing app during flight and restarting application.
  • Improved all LEDs/Displays turning off when app is closed, flight has ended, and/or Sim has closed.
  • Significant improvements to encoder speed and precision.

Bug Fixes

  • Application has been re-written from the ground up. Most, if not all bugs have been fixed.
  • Fixed issue with lock ups during flight when using Fenix.
  • Fixed issue with Motor not correctly going to correct place during flight.
  • Fixed issue with Fenix values not correctly being displayed after long flights.
  • Fixed encoder speed and laggy responsiveness.
  • Fixed encoders sometimes do not go the correct direction.
  • Added additional padding to dead zones on Axis so they do not send multiple signals causing application to lock up.
  • Reworked Fenix connection to be more reliable.

Known Issues

  • The Skalarki ECAM is finicky. We notice during testing that sometimes it doesn’t like to communicate. The way to easily fix this is to “Re-Init” on the panels page and everything is fine.
  • During a couple test runs we noticed that the plane file is not loading properly.  This is due to the SimConnect connection not getting the proper plane info.  To fix this an easy restart of the SA application gets you back on track.
  • SEL LED on RMP sometimes does not update when planes power is turned on/off on FBWA32NX.   This is since FBW does not support this feature and this driver fakes it.
